Kanha. The lengthening evening shadows. A cup of warm chai and never-ending conversations. This is how Footloose Journeys began.
Bablu, our driver in Kanha, was talking with unprecedented fervor. The jungle, traversed all day in the open-top safari, was coming alive once again. Bablu’s words were painting a picture unseen to the tourists. It was not that he had been reticent before. No one had bothered to ask.
The guides and drivers that unravel the mysteries of the forests often remain nameless. Hidden behind the veil of professional tourism, the real contributors to the forest perform a thankless job. It was the desire to repay their unspoken debt that got us started on Footloose. We are passionate travellers who believe that there is more to travelling than just “visiting” a place! We believe that travelling is more than just a bunch of tick-marks on the list of places you wish to visit. We believe that a traveller should try and understand the place rather than just be there. And with this credence, we aim at adding social values to tourism – for the benefit of both the visitors and the hosts!
We conduct Socio - Eco Ventures. We also conduct camping.
Footloose adds a touch of the unexplored to the conventional. We take you into the very heart of the places you visit. We believe the places are much more than the geography and ecology. In fact, the most important aspect of every ‘destination’ is the society that builds and maintains it.
We introduce you to the lives of people like safari guides and drivers, tribal people, farmers, and villagers whose contributions to the locations make them what they are. Be it the rugged plains of Spiti, the mystic wilderness of Kanha, or the flourishing rural farmlands of the Western Ghats, it’s these individuals and communities that leave an imprint on the location. We visit and live in the homes of these locals, participate in their traditions, and get in touch with something many of us vainly seek in the urban world: the exhilaration of being Footloose.
